I am interested in how photosynthetic organisms perceive and respond to environmental signals, particularly light. In addition, we are interested in how cell adhesion molecules and events result in the formation of filaments in filamentous cyanobacteria. Current projects in the lab are:
- Elucidating the psbDII high-light signal transduction pathway in Synechococcus elongatus PCC7942.
- Deciphering the function of putative eukaryotic-type extra-cellular matrix protein genes in cyanobacteria
